Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) September 12, 2005
MÃK Technologies, the world's leading supplier of distributed simulation software, announced today that the Australian Defence Simulation Office (ADSO) has chosen to standardize on the MÃK RTI for High Level Architecture (HLA) networking for distributed simulation systems for development of the Australian Joint Simulation Capability (JSC) in partnership with the Australian Army Navy, Air Force, and Defence Science Technology Organization (DSTO). The choice is expected to enhance cooperation and interoperability between the services and the defense experimentation framework.
ÂThe MÃK RTI was chosen after an extensive evaluation,Â said Cliff White, Director General of ADSO. ÂWe wanted to implement a standardized approach to connectivity and the MÃK RTI's proven performance in large exercises was the deciding factor in our choice.Â
ÂMÃK recognizes the trust ADSO has given us with their choice of our RTI,Â said Warren Katz, MÃK Technologies' chief operating officer. ÂTheir purchase recognizes our interoperability expertise, our superior technical support, and the cost-effectiveness of purchasing our product over other options.Â
An RTI is a key component of the HLA networking architecture. The verified and fully compliant MÃK RTI has been chosen as the backbone of major simulation programs. MÃK RTI customers include Lockheed Martin's F-16 Mission Training Center, Northrop
Grumman Mission Systems' DMT lab, the NATO First WAVE exercise, AFRL Warfighter Training Research Division, FATS and Verrax. The MÃK RTI is consistently proven in third party studies to be the most efficient RTI available.
